Ball Boutique, Inc. ~ What's Up 2009

 

January 4, 2009

Well last night I was talking to a customer of mine. We were discussing breeding ball pythons. He told me the sizes of his girls and I told him to put the boys in with the girls. [He was planning on starting breeding in 2010!] Well while on the phone he put three pairs of animals together. Funny but this morning he called me back and two pairs were locked UP! He was really excited in his voice. This is his first breeding year. Glad it happened he is a great guy! Hope at least one will drop some good eggs.

If  lock ups mean lot of eggs then I will have the best year ever! Lot of interesting combos too.

Saw my super pastel locked up with my genetic stripe!!!!!!

March 28, 2009

Well today saw my bee hooked to a pastel and my VPI Axanthic hooked up with a het Axanthic. Should be a good year for me but you never know till the fat lady sings. Most of my adults are off food. So my freezer gets full fast. Took two freezers full to NJ. Sold the first two fast. Hope to have some good cross breeding too. No one has produced some of these morphs. [At least to my knowledge]. We shall see. I hope to have big girls for sale this year too. Hets and normals.

Just found 4 gravid girls this weekend. I can't wait till my first clutch!

April 26, 2009

Today I felt four more girls with eggs! Can't wait.

April 30, 2009

First clutch of the year.......8 eggs.

July 21, 2009

I felt so bad after loosing 3 clutches this year. And today I could not wait any longer. I had to cut on day 58! So I have two eggs from a 66% het pied female and I cut the first egg........pied! yep pied. The second egg was a het. Hope they survive and come out ok. Then if that was not enough .... I had my 100% het pied lay 5 eggs today too! Ahh I feel better now! I am sure I will have some more downers yet.

August 1, 2009

A call form a potential customer today. He asked me about my spider and pastel combo. I said yes indeed they are up for sale. He then asked does the spider wobble? I said I have not seen it but I CAN NOT GUARANTEE THAT HE WOULD NOT. The customer then said he would look elsewhere.

Now I know someone will tell him that their spider does NOT wobble. Can't wait till my potential customer buys one and watch that it indeed has the wobbles. Perhaps he even pays more for him. Shame I can not be there. Yes I could have lied to him but then again I like repeat customers. I wish him well. Caveat Emptor!!!!!!!!!!

August 16, 2009

Go figure. Yesterday I felt my LA female and felt little bumps. So I said what the hell I put my male het with her. And you bet they were locked up. Just maybe I will get lucky.

September 10, 2009

Well a long time and I am getting frustrated. I purchased possible het albinos from a reputable breeder. I breed the four males to normals. So far not one male was het for albino. I bred a male albinos to them. So far her is my results: Three #2 male are normal also one of #3 and one #4. I have two males left this year number 3 and 4. Lot of work for 0 results. Needless to say I am upset!

September 14, 2009

Well today I have one het caramel out of the egg, One spider in the egg. I cut the other two one het and one spider. The spiders are het caramel! Happy dances today.

September 21, 2009

OK I need a pity party! The spider het caramel died in the egg. Now to add insult to injury I have 5 eggs from a het pied female 4 hets 1 pied. I need an adult beverage.......

I know that observing copulation does not mean eggs. That said before you jump all over me.
I have observed several copulations going on with several females. A total of 14! Some multiple times with some females! This year I am making a spread sheet to keep records. Could make something new as well as standard combos. Good luck to all.

December 13, 2009

Well so far we have 23 different girls lockups!  And we have had several multiple lockups with the same girls. This is what I have observed so far this season. On Tuesday I will be receiving a LA male and heterozygous female LA. I should  be having LA eggs this year also. Going to be a good year. I am also just about sold all my 2009 hatchlings too! Looking forward to 2010......

 December 26, 2009

I now have a total of 25 different girls that have locked up. And one girl with six eggs! Now if all eggs re good and babies hatch and eat. But it is the first time I felt eggs this early.

 December 27, 2009

Don't want to pound my chest BUT 2 more different girls locked up today. Such as pied  X albino! :-) Sweet
